Nick and Katie were married at St Mary’s Church in Ponteland Northumberland, with their Wedding Reception being held at the Copthorne Hotel on the banks of the River Tyne in Newcastle. It was a fantastic day with lots and lots of smiles and laughter. We were absolutely delighted to be chosen to photograph their big day. Capturing stunning photographs of moments and memories to last a lifetime.
For weddings, there is usually myself and my second shooter on this occasion it was my daughter Stacey, we have the honour of sharing the day with the bride and groom plus their friends and family.
We are based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and are happy to travel anywhere. Most photographers have the same aim as myself, which is to delight their clients and it should go without saying that they would want to produce images that are personal, stylish and emotive.
I love seeing people’s reactions when they view their photographs for the first time, but it is just as important to ensure that it will become a joyous feeling for years to come. Every wedding is special and every one I shoot is an honour to be a part of.
There will be opportunities to be creatively bold and daring, and there will be times when simplicity should be the main driver. I will bring with me a bag of ideas, with space for new ones supplied by you the client. I love to create a set of pictures that tell the story of a wonderful wedding, evoke the magic of the day and capture the happiness it brings.
I have a sense of humour and an unobtrusive informal approach that will make you feel at ease being the centre of attention. Although I’m influenced by current styles and fashions in wedding photography what I do on a wedding day is a reaction to you and what happens on your big day.
I set myself high standards and I’m passionate about taking great images however in my opinion the best photos come from people who are not aware they are being photographed. I therefore like to work in a reportage style and enjoy mixing in with your guests wherever possible; I find this really helps to capture the intimate moments and genuine happiness of your family and friends as they are at their most relaxed.
I will recommend shots that I trust you will like, however if you have any specific ideas then I will make sure that I accommodate your wishes.
